My name is Nick Gatzke and I serve as the Senior Pastor of Old North Church. My primary responsibilities at the church include preaching and teaching the Bible, vision casting, leading our staff team, and working with our elders in providing leadership, oversight, and spiritual care for the church.
My greatest joy in ministry is seeing how God changes lives through the preaching of the Scriptures. Having personally experienced an ongoing relationship with God, I get really excited when I can help others as they engage in a fulfilling relationship with God. The Lord is working in this way at Old North and it makes it an exciting place to be!
I am married to Amy and we have three young children, Alexa, Noelle and Carsten. In my spare time I love good conversations with friends, laughing, good books, golf, hiking, fishing and chasing my kids around. Our journey in ministry has taken us many places and I have been blessed to serve as the former Senior Pastor of Osterville Baptist Church in Cape Cod, MA and previously to receive my education and training at Moody Bible Institute (B.A.), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div), and the London School of Theology (PhD).
Some of my favorite things about our church are how the core values of healthy children & healthy families; personal & intentional discipleship; and biblical preaching & teaching are lived out in a group of people that truly care about God and each other. At ONC, you’ll find many people who genuinely care for each other and have lots of fun while pursuing growth in their relationships with God. As such, many share in the joy and pain, successes and failures of those around them as they “do life” together and grow in a community together.
We invite you to join us! No matter where you are on your spiritual journey we trust that you will encounter God here as you learn more, grow, and experience life change with the many others who participate in the life of Old North.
